About this course

Petroleum Geoscience is an interdiciplinary field that applies geoscience principles and quantitative methods in the search and development of commercial oil and gas fields. It includes interpreting, predicting and managing risks and uncertainties in exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbon resources. At Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, the MSc Petroleum Geoscience Programme is tailored to train young graduates and professionals from the industry in the full range of approaches, methods and techniques to explore and evaluate new oil and gas fields and to characterise reservoirs
The Programme is designed to meet the capability requirements for:

  • Exploration Geoscience
  • Reservoir Geoscience
  • Upstream Economics and E & P Business Demands

This is achieved through 12 technical modules, 2 management electives, fieldwork and an Industrial Project. There is a high degree of computer usage for project, teaching and on-line support. High performance workstations provide powerful graphics and processing capability enabling students to interpret, evaluate and characterise the subsurface.

Entry Requirements
